The start of the next phase

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!

Today, I had oral surgery. This surgery was the last thing we needed to happen before beginning treatments.  I’m in quite a bit of pain, but I’m happy to have it complete.  However, sticking to my whole30 diet while on soft foods and hurting is a challenge! We are on day 9 of Whole30  currently! It is super important to us to be as healthy as we can possibly be right now. I have also re-joined the local yoga studio (shout out: http://www.spiralbranchyoga.com – If you are in the Denham Springs, LA area and you haven’t checked them out, you are missing out!) Both the Whole30 and Yoga have helped me tremendously already! I feel my mind is in a much clearer place, my spirit is uplifted, and I’m sleeping so much better!

I will begin my 10 days of progesterone tomorrow! It feels surreal that we are actually beginning treatments.  While I am excited about the process, I’m taking it one day at a time.  I don’t want to get my hopes up too much (and add to the devastation if it doesn’t work), but I also don’t want to be a pessimist.  One day at a time. One step a time.  While this isn’t exactly how I imagined myself having children, I am grateful for options, and I am even more grateful for a supportive husband by my side through it all.  I couldn’t ask for a better person on my team!

For all of my friends going through the same things, figuring out their next steps, and waiting for/receiving IVF and IUI results, you are all in my prayers! We are all in this together!

  1. You are most definitely not alone. Love and support comes to you both from many directions. And although failed treatment can be heartbreaking don’t think of failed conception as failure. It’s just leaving space for the grand plan to unravel and for the baby that’s meant to be yours to come. ,😘
